    Disease & Pest Resistance:
    Luffas mainly grown for the dry product, although can be eaten while small.

    Look like large cucumbers when growing, and when mature turn a brown colour skin, in fact you would think they were rotting.

    Skin is peeled back and dried, whereby you then shake a multitude of seeds out.

    Can be bleached if they are too brown on the inside, but normally cream coloured.
